More Satin Stitch

I’ve pulled out some pictures of earlier dolls that feature satin stitch faces.  I’m not doing these as much as the simpler outline stitch faces now.  Satin stitch is much more involved, but it is a beautiful stitch.

The sun is one of my favorites.  I love his colors.

The moon is his companion.  Both the sun and the moon have handmade felt bodies.

“Sidelined by Fear” was shown at the International Quilt Festival with In Celebration of the Doll in 2010 and at the Textile Center with Figuratively Fiber in 2011.

“Reborn of Fire” was also  at the IQF but in the Treasures of the Gypsy Challenge 2009.  She won Best in Show and was purchased by Pamela Armas for her personal collection.
